CHEMICAL RESISTANCE GUIDE

This guide is offered as a general aid in selecting the appropriate materials used for a broad spectrum of aggressive chemicals
routinely handled by the products we manufacture. Because chemicals and their properties can vary greatly, this chart is to be used
at your discretion. The accuracy of these ratings cannot be guaranteed. Your chemical supplier is the best source for definitive
material compatibility. Careful consideration must be given to all characteristics of the chemical and process system including
chemical concentration, installation conditions, pressure, and temperature before a final material is selected.
Although the information set forth herein is presented in good faith and believed to be correct on the date of issuance, LMI makes
no guarantee or representation as to the completeness or accuracy thereof, and disclaims all liability for any loss or damage resulting
from use or reliance upon any information, recommendations or suggestions contained herein. LMI MAKES NO EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS OF WARRANTIES AS TO THE FITNESS, MERCHANTABILITY, OR ANY OTHER MATTER WITH
RESPECT TO THE INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN OR ANY PRODUCT OR SUBSTANCE REFERRED TO HEREIN,
whether used alone or in combination with any other material. Nothing contained herein is to be construed as a recommendation to
use any product in conflict with any patent. The information is subject to change without notice.

As always, you can rely on your LMI distributor to help with standard and unique applications.

MATERIAL DESCRIPTIONS
METAL WETTED COMPONENTS
316 Stainless Steel alloy of iron, carbon, nickel and chromium. A nonmagnetic stainless steel with more ductility than 400SS. Austenitic in structure, 316
stainless steel has excellent corrosion resistance to a wide range of chemicals. It is not susceptible to stress corrosion cracking or affected by heat treatment.
316 stainless steel is the most widely used material for pump heads, check valves, balls and other wetted components.
Alloy 20 contains more nickel and chromium than 300 series stainless steel and with the addition of columbium that retards stress corrosion cracking and
has improved resistance to sulphuric acid.
Cast Iron an alloy of iron, carbon and silicon; easily cast; good pressure retention. Cast iron has excellent dampening properties and is easily machined. The
cost of cast iron is moderately favorable to stainless steel and is often selected for industrial water treatment chemicals when its acceptable.
Hastelloy C a high nickel-chromium molybdenum alloy that has outstanding resistance to a wide variety of chemical process environments, including
strong oxidizers such as sodium hypochlorite, and ferric chloride. Hastelloy C is also resistant to nitric, hydrochloric, and sulfuric acids at moderate
temperatures. Its often used as spring material in check valves of non-metallic pumps. Two grades of Alloy C are used in pump components, C276 and
C22. The two grades differ slightly in chemical compatibility, so care should be taken in the selection process.

LMI is a proud member of Accudyne Industries, a leading global provider of precision-engineered, process-critical, and technologically advanced flow
control systems and industrial compressors. Delivering consistently high levels of performance, we enable customers in the most important industries
and harshest environments around to accomplish their missions.

ELASTOMERS AND SEALS

NON-METAL WETTED COMPONENTS


Acrylic resistant to many chemicals. Acrylic is often favored over
other plastics for use as pump head material because it is clear and
enables the user to observe pump performance.
Ceramic Is used for seats, weights and ball checks in a number of
pump products. Ceramic has the advantages of having a high level
of hardness while being very corrosion resistant to a wide range of
chemicals even at elevated temperatures. Alumina is not compatible
with some chemicals such as hydrofluoric, hydrofluorosilicic, and
hydrochloric acids.
Polyethylene has excellent chemical resistance to strong acids
and bases. It is also resistant to gentle oxidants and reducing
agents. Its primary use in pumps is as a seat material in pump heads
made primarily of other plastic materials.
Polypropylene is generally high in chemical resistance but slightly
lower in physical properties compared to PVC. It is chemically
resistant to organic solvents, acids, and alkalines.It is typically not
effective when in contact with strong oxidizing acids, chlorinated
hydrocarbons, and aromatics.
PVC PVC is the most frequently specified of all thermoplastic
materials. It is characterized by high physical properties and
resistance to corrosion and chemical attack by acids, alkalines,
salt solutions, and many other chemicals. It is not successful
handing ketones, some chlorinated hydrocarbons, and aromatics.
The maximum service temperature of PVC is 140F. PVC pipe
connections can be solvent cemented (recommended for many
chemicals) threaded, or flanged.
PVDF a strong and abrasion-resistant fluorocarbon material. It
resists distortion and retains most of its strength to 280F. PVDF
is excellent with most acids, bases, and organic solvents. It also
applies well to chlorine, bromine and other halogens. No other
plastic material approaches the combination of strength, chemical
resistance and working temperatures of PVDF. PVDF is joined by a
fusion process, threading or flanging.

NOTE REFERENCES
1. Consult LMI distributor
2. Absorption of moisture from the air dilutes chemical and increases corrosion.
3. Consult LMI distributor for assistance
4. Consult LMI distributor - Slurry - use HV liquid ends
5. Liquefied gas - consult LMI distibutor
6. Polypropylene only good to 38% concentration.
7. Polypropylene, PEEK, and FKM up to 80 % concentration.
8. Recommend liquid end flush
9. Recommend liquid end flushing
10. Subject to gas binding - use degassing head.
11. Use 316 ss if Titanium Dioxide must remain white
12. Use degassing head, double ball checks, Polyethylene must be HDPE
13. Use liquid ends with HV options
14. Use ceramic ball checks - Consult LMI distributor
15. Use HV liquid ends
16. Use PTFE ball checks
17. Use HV liquid ends
18. Usually requires high temp options - Consult LMI distributor
19. Volatile with hydrocarbons - Subject to gas binding - use degassing head.
20. Can be very corrosive - recommend plastics

NOTE: For applications where Hastelloy C sprins are not


compatible, PVDF coated springs are avalable.

NOTE: For unlisted chemicals, consult your LMI distributor

Polyprel/Aflas is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and


propylene with a fluorine content of about 54%. This material is
resistant to petroleum products and phosphate-esters. Service
temperatures are -25F to 400F. Aflasprovides improved chemical
resistance to a wide spectrum of oils, rust inhibitors, amines, acids
and bases. Aflas is typically used for o-rings in various pump
models.
Buna N a general purpose oil-resistant polymer known as nitrile
rubber. Nitrile is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile with a
moderate temperature range of -20F to 180F. Nitrile is resistant
with solvents, oils, water, and hydraulic fluid. Buna N should not be
used with highly polar solvents such as acetone and methyl ethyl
ketone, or in applications with chlorinated hydrocarbons, ozone or
nitro hydrocarbons. In metering pumps Buna N is primarily used for
o-ring seals.
EPDM EPDM has good abrasion and tear resistance and offers
excellent chemical resistance to a variety of acids and alkalines.
It is susceptible to attack by oils and is not recommended for
applications involving petroleum oils, strong acids, or strong
alkalines. It is fairly good with ketones and alcohols and has a wide
temperature range from -20F to 250F.
PTFE/FluorofilmTM has outstanding resistance to chemical attack
by most chemicals and solvents. PTFE has a wide temperature
rating of -20F to 400F as a seal. It is also used as the primary
material in diaphragms where temperature limits vary based on
backing material. FluoroFilmTM is a copolymer of PTFE and PFA.
Viton (FKM) compatible with a broad range of chemicals. Viton
is usually used for o-rings, and as a backing material for PTFE
diaphragms. It can also be used for ball checks. FKM can be used in
most applications involving mineral acids, salt solutions, chlorinated
hydrocarbons, and petroleum oils. It is also good in hydrocarbon
service. Viton has a temperature range of -20F to 300F.
